Receive Coats as an Individual

For individuals in need of a coat, please come to one of our walk-in distribution centers. No ID or vouchers are required. 
For questions about the number of coats distributed per person at each location, please contact the agency directly. 

Please be aware that our distribution centers are not guaranteed to have coats at any given time. We try to keep them stocked as best as our donation supply will allow.
